Our all-private Mother/Baby suites have been designed to create a comfortable,
“homelike” setting for our families. Each suite has been carefully
designed with a décor of rich woods, new furnishings, soothing
colors and subtle lighting. This design allows new moms, dads, siblings
— and the entire family — to enjoy their time with the new
arrival in a warm, cozy setting.
Each suite features a pull-out bed for overnight guests, a comfortable
rocking chair for mom, an all-tile, beautifully appointed private bath
with shower and hairdryer, refrigerator, TV, VCR, DVD, and high-speed
internet access in every room. Our suites also afford mom the opportunity
to have her baby with her at all times. All suites are equipped with the
latest security and monitoring technology to ensure the security and health
of mother, baby, and family.
Our newly renovated and expanded nursery provides immediate care following
birth. The nursery provides total care for those who prefer it, or mothers
can choose to have their babies with them all or part of the time. The
nursery is surrounded by windows for a constant view of the newborn and
features the latest equipment and technology to ensure the best care for the baby.
Level II Intermediate Care Nursery
Sometime newborns, especially those who are born premature or with health
problems, need that extra bit of medical care during the first few days
of life. Our all-new Level II Intermediate Care Nursery features eight
bassinets and is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment, new monitoring
and charting systems, private rooms for moms to breastfeed or bond in
privacy, and a separate family waiting area – all contained within
the same location.
Our staff of specialized, board-certified neonatologists is on-hand to
meet the unique requirements of our “special needs” newborns.
